A tutorial on, How Much Can I Really Tow

Mark & Trish of Scottsdale full-time with 3 teens. Their videos are exceptional because they are knowledgeable, well spoken, and entertaining. They usually are more focused on their destinations.

This video is unusual, because I think Mark does an excellent job addressing trucks, capacities, and the math, all in 15 minutes.

Is it useful? Please excuse, he doesn't tow an FG egg.

He used to tow with an F-150. I think he felt he had too much trailer. Now a 250. Smart!

Excellent source, I wish I would have had it when I first started towing an RV. One thing for sure, as I follow this group there is considerable misinformation floating around on this topic. This really clears it up, and while the tow vehicle in the video is a truck, the data applies to all types of tow vehicles. Thank You!
